    So let it be written, so let it be done.  Little Steven has spoken. 

    @fletcherfam, you are up for starting the next thread and declaring the rules and the deadline.  After you judge that one, you get to name the judge for the next one.  Until then the burden is yours. 

    I hereby pass @henapple's whining about bacon and @Village_Idiot's premature victory speeches on to you - you may do with them as you please. 

    Cazzy's grace in victory convinced me I picked the right person and used the right criteria.

    One request though. I would really appreciate it if Cen-Tex, VI and Necessary Indulgences be prohibited from participating. I need a hope in hell of getting at least a show

    You're missing the beauty of how I set this up.  Some Throwdowns may be "best brisket" or "best appetizer" or "best plating and margarita picture" so the aforementioned will be strong competition.  But some judges may choose to set up the Throwdown as "Best appetizer cooked with a Canadian mushroom - and all pics must be taken with a portable phone and have a Molson in the background".  Sure, the competition will be unfair for that particular Throwdown - but that's half the fun.  By setting up imaginative, potentially crazy rules we will force people to expand their horizons even more than this site already does.

    Just make the required ingredient, whale blubber or moose lips.  Even Centrtal Market doesn't carry that.   :D

    Maybe you could trade someone 3 PBRs for an empty Molson bottle so you could have it for your pic.

    OK, so before I start the new thread here are my thoughts on the subject over the weekend:

    1. My thought would be to do longer than a week turn around on these, that way people have time to plan/prepare. I know it would be challenging for me to do a week. (thoughts?)
    2. Pictures are required (of course). Pictures must include the following: ingredients, the cook, the finished product/plated, at a minimum.
    3. Point system or voting is the biggest question. What do you guys think?
    4. I will try and solicit prizes, however, if we do every week we may see if we can do a once a month prize as I don't think 4 prizes a month from people/companies is realistic.
    5. Examples of throwdowns would be: Chicken, appetizers, pizza, "X Factor," Brisket, ribs, dessert, breads, pork, "uncommon meats (think rabbit, duck, etc).
    6. It would be sweet if we could do badges on our User IDs for the winners.

    Ok let's get the ball rolling and my thought would be to finalize all the details today/tomorrow and the first cook start on this Wednesday and go until the following Sunday, sound good?

    Windows 8. There is no settings place. I had a problem earlier and registered for help. I selected Canadian for spelluing and it must have decided I was French Canadian. All of my punctuation marks are now lè accent et gout Lèaccent grave and all that other crap
    Just change to American English, I know that's a bit of an oxymoron, but at least the rest of us will understand your posts. No wait - you make more sense with the funny accents. Great idea, sounds fun.

    I think ribs and butts would be tough to judge.

    What do you think of having the winner be the judge for the next cook?

    I propose the IEEE voting method: Allowing multiple selections per ballot - everyone gets one ballot.  Say there are 3 entries, A, B, C.

    one vote for each is a non-vote.
    one vote for A, and not B or C is a strong vote for A.
    one vote for B and C, but not A - is a vote against A.

    Then, just tally the totals.  The more entrants, the more you can play with the above. This voting theory avoids the pitfalls of the 'least disliked' winning.

    "5. Examples of throwdowns would be: Chicken, appetizers, pizza, "X Factor," Brisket, ribs, dessert, breads, pork, "uncommon meats (think rabbit, duck, etc)."

    Sandwich

    Finger food you could eat at a campsite with no utensils straight off the egg

    Fish

    Meat not purchased in a store - must have been hunted or caught

     

    The possibilities are endless.

    It would be a good idea to close entries Monday midnight, judging Tuesday. That gives folks who are away over the weekend to have a shot

    @LittleSteven, good point,

    @sumoconnell, that system is a little hard for my little head to understand on a Monday morning.

    On the winner, what about the one with the most "likes" wins?

    The ieee system may require an absolution from alcohol. I can't imagine trying to figure that out on a Monday morning. :((

    If the judge is a Democrat, I demand a Republican overseer.  In the case of Canada, if a Whig, we demand a Tory.

    If the judge is a Democrat the prize given to the winner will be taken away and split among those that didn't want to cook. Those that finished in the middle are just screwed.

    Well we're up to six pages. No throwdown yet but we will get there eventually. If we could find a moderator/forum tech to set up a vote setup we would be half the way there.

    OK, so the throw down will start on this Wednesday 5/15 and end 11:59 PM on Monday 5/27 (Memorial Day).

    I am thinking about doing the number of "likes" as the winner. This makes it easy @LittleSteven, and maybe we don't need a moderator. I will start a new thread with the details.
